HAWAII'S FILIPINO VETERANS

With the U.S. colonization of the Philippines at the end of the 19th century, Filipinos have played both friend and foe to U.S. geopolitical interests. Even when Filipino "insurgents" resisted the U.S. colonial regime, others were concurrently co-opted by it.

Beginning with the creation of the Philippine Scouts in the Philippines during the U.S. colonial period at the end of the 19th century, Hawaii's Filipinos have played important roles and made significant contributions to the legacy of the U.S. military services.
